It’s a bit difficult to explain but when I draw a line it doesn’t appear immediately. When I draw and remove the wacom pen from the screen, I don’t see a line. As soon as I touch the screen again to draw the next line the previous line immediately shows up. When I remove and touch again the next line shows up.
Seems to me like some weird redraw problem. I don’t think it’s a ‘normal’ lag. Other software like photoshop runs super fast on the companion and also Toon Boom Studio worked really great as well. And I don’t see any direct lagging.
I tried to enable/disable random options in the preferences that vaguely sounded as if they could help (but I have no idea what I’m doing and nothing helped). I wonder if anyone has any idea about this problem.
If I can’t get it to work nicely I guess I can’t use it on my cintiq which would be really sad…
I can confirm to the community that this problem still exists. I upgraded my Cintiq Companion 2 to Windows 10 and suddenly there was a massive lag in Storyboard Pro 5, between touching pen to the surface and when the marking actually appears on screen. The screen also goes black regularly after each pen-touch. Fortunately, Microsoft gives you a quick and simple way to just revert back to Windows 8.
This is your friend :-)…
Settings > Update & security > Recovery > Go back to Windows 8.1
I tried disabling Use Windows Ink and Double Click Distance to off but that didn’t help.
I’m also wondering if you had written something else I should try after the ‘Try this’ because the next sentence starts with ‘also’, implying there was some other thing, maybe a link…?
I’m beginning to think it’s some weird graphic error but updating the driver for the intel iris 5100 didn’t help. Maybe they are just not compatible or something. (Even though Toon Boom Studio worked fine). I wrote a message to support now.
Well the weird lag I’m having is not that it appears a bit later. It appears when I touch the screen the next time. I also noticed it doesn’t only affect the pen, it affects anything I’m doing in the drawing area of harmony. Even if I just move it around, erase something or do something via touch. It just shows the result when I touch it the next time (either hand or pen).
I upgraded my graphics and wacom tablet drivers but that sadly didn’t help. I sent a message to support now. I’ll let you guys know in case I find a solution.
Thanks for trying to help!
Yes, always. In all software. Only the drawing area of harmony essentials seems to hate me. Even Harmony itself seems to work normally, it’s just the drawing area. Which is weird.
Yes, I use it all the time and have a lot of different key configurations XD I also often recalibrate (when changing my screen position for example)
I updated my graphics and tablet drivers but it sadly didn’t help.
I sent them a message, I really hope they can help me. If not I think I’ll move it to my laptop, the trial version worked perfectly on my dell XPS with my wacom intuos 3.
I had the companion 1 last year and never had issues but have had to recalibrate my surface pro 2 a few times when I had the weird lag issue when you draw then the line shows up a mil second later good luck let us know if you fix it.
I had the same issue, and so far the only way around it for me was to remove my monitor and use only the Cintiq. I was really hoping to use both screens, but whenever the other screen is hooked up it becomes impossible to draw properly in TB. Perhaps you have a monitor hooked up that you may now wish to remove?
I’ve got the Cintiq Companion2 512 GB, and I don’t have any problem with TB Harmony Premium, no lagging at all when drawing, but with my old Asus Slate B121, Harmony would not even start, it would crash all the time. Cintiq is the best tool for any digital artist, the only problem is the interface of Harmony looks tiny in the Cintiq Companion2 screen, same happens to Adobe Flash cs6, but Photoshop looks normal.
I’m on a Cintiq Companion 2 and was having the same problem with TB Storyboard Pro 5.1…until i found this in: Preferences>Advanced: Delay before drawing vectorized strokes. was set to 1000?? why in the world would you want a lag?! set to 0 and problem fixed for me. hope this helps
I Can only work with it at home . but it works well with photoshop and toonboom program . the stylus support 60 degrees of pen tilt , it’s useful when drawing , I love this affordable pen display monitor .
